[applause] show me one example in the last 10 year where is the democrats gave up a winnable seat. no, that hasn't happened. passion is great but in politics scoring is all that counts. we can't anticipate every candidate's mistake but we can stop encouraging our candidates to show off for the base by taking positions that are not our positions. it is no the position of the national rifle committee that a woman should be forced to carry the baby of her rapist. i think our position is -- no, absolutely exception for rape and incest. now let's talk about the other 99% of abortion.

, his term is ending soon. they have an election scheduled for april of next year. he feels that he will be a lame duck president. therefore, also his calculations personally are that the united states has larger plans and would like to stay in afghanistan and the region. he would like to be seen as the man who is pushing america out or defending the afghan interests. >> woodruff: ambassador james dobbins, this idea that the u.s. would be wanting to stay longer in afghanistan, is there any truth to that? >> there is some truth but i think karzai exaggerates the degree to which the united states is committed and wants to stay in afghanistan. i mean clearly if we had no role in afghanistan, we would have no way of coping with al qaeda either in pakistan or afghanistan. all of the attacks on al qaeda in pakistan a today are conducted from afghanistan. so we have an interest in retaining some role. we see a very modest, small role for the united states. karzai, i think, has an exaggerated sense of how important this is and how large a role we have. but there's a kernel of truth there. >

as save it services this is the of shortening the election time to three weeks or workers to decide in 18 days and the gerrymander micro bargaining units will exclude employees who do not favor the decision to unionize. but not just at the borden level but with campaigns they moved to to pressure an employer rather than persuading the employees. this is not just be but the words of union organizers the former secretary-treasurer of the united food commercial workers 1951 he says who do you really need to convince the vintages of the union? employees or employers? with the nlrb putting enough pressure on employers time energy and money to get them to surrender to the union this is called the pressure campaign. idle believe we have the luxury hoping to employees come knocking on our door looking for a solution. if that is the lifeblood that we have to create our own reality that means focusing on nonunion employers. and making them pay. but to wage economic war is it might turn the employees against union. if you have massive support you to have a traditional campaign. the advantages overwh

-- it is the same amount of time approximately that it took to elect the previous pope. it's not extraordinarily fast. it only surprise many of us because there was no favorite. therefore, there was a great deal of speculation about the cardinals being divided and therefore taking a long time, having to choose a compromise candidate. now it would appear that because of the time span, they did not choose a compromise candidate. my analysis would be that they decided fairly early on somebody who had a simple majority. in the papal election, benedict xvi revised that to make sure the new pope had very widespread support throughout the world. he reintroduced the old condition that the pope has to achieve at least a 2/3 majority. in this case, 78 votes is a minimum out of 112. that is 2/3, plus one. because 112 is not divisible by 3. it would be extraordinary if the pope had only achieved it by 78 votes. he probably had even more. that indicates to me that, as i said, if it is not a compromise candidate, it is somebody who the cardinals, a considerable number of the cardinals decided very, very early

election victory and good numbers in the polls to pressure them to do things. he got some things out of that - a deal with the fiscal cliff negotiation, and also got them to back down on the debt limit. but approval ratings are down. retried to work with republican leaders. that isn't working. now he's going to the rank and file and the basic center of this deal, the grand bargain, is that he will convince democrats to cut entitlements if republicans agree to some revenue from taxes. the other drama are these official budgets that came out. they bear no resemblance to that other drama or to reality. they're essentially campaign documents for each side. the house republicans put out theirs and the senate democrats put out theirs. if it's a family budget it's like sitting down and saying you know, i'm going to get that promotion and we're not going to spend any money when we go out for dinner. these are all hopes and wonderful things but then bump into reality. gwen: if you go on our website you'll see a feature in which john talks about the president going to capitol hill for a charm

the party gap. i see a big difference between democratic women increasing and increasing their election to office and republican women, as someone put it, flatlining. in some of the state legislatures that is not quite the case. if you look across the bottom you see that party gap where they are increasing in state legislatures. if you look ated sd, arizona, you see there is a strong republican presence. in washington, that is actually true, too. so this is a party change and the women elected to the washington state legislature for four sample years. 1973, 1983, and 2003. you will see that the party gap is actually closed a little bit in the washington state legislature. i picked washington mostly as a sample case. i have several other states i'm working on. that they consistently have a large number of women in their statehouse. so they are very interesting to the study. what difference does it make? very quickly i'm going to focus you on the contrast. these are the bills introduced in the same women's issues category. you can see in 1973, note the scale goes up to two, that there are

a couple of years ago, but between 2003 and 2007, he was the democratically elected president of argentina. his wife, christina, was his democratically elected successor. she was elected in 2007. while she was president, before he died, he went and served as a member of congress in his country. then in 2007, the year before she was up for reelection as president christina fernandez de kirchner picked a fight. her government sponsored a bill that gave gay people in argentina an equal right with straight people to marry, adopt children, inherit money just like first class citizenship. it was a proposed expansion of human rights in a country that a generation prior had famously, famously violated human rights on a grand scale. under a military dictatorship, an estimated 30,000 people were killed or sometimes just disappeared. there are still people in argentina who do not know what happened to friends and family in the 1970s. there are still people who are technically considered missing. and against the backdrop of that relatively recent massive human rights violation history, the very first

for national republican candidates that can actually win a national election. sure, it might get them the republican party nomination, might win them iowa, new hampshire, any of the republican primaries, but when it comes to winning the big house, when it comes to winning the white house, impossible. impossible. >> and look, i don't think there's anything wrong with having fun at these kinds of things. >> sure. >> and if you really sat down with the cpac team and said how do we construct the most serious version of this event we can have in which we are really trying to figure out how to go forward as a party, who would you put up there, jonathan, who would you say are the top three to hear from. >> that's easy. chris christie. >> he's banned. they're not going to hear a word from him. >> you said if you wanted to have it be a serious version of cpac, chris christie, bobby jindal, scott walker, even paul ryan with his unserious budget, but at least he's in congress with responsibility and putting himself on the line, even if it is bad ideas, but he's putting himself on the line with i

of the pontiff elective, they did thought forget the pope that just stepped down. >> translator: such an interior attitude is ours today as we wish to offer ourselves to the father in heaven to thank him for the holy existence that he reserves in the holy church and in particular the holy pontificate that he has for us. the venerable pope benedict xvi to whom we renew in this minute all of our gratitude. >> the very next big event comes 30 minutes from now, give or take. the cardinals will line up least senior to most senior. they will all process into the chapel to take their vows of secrecy. at that point, everyone else is kicked out. the doors are officially locked and the conclave begins. my colleague chris cuomo is as close to that process as anyone can get. he joins us live. chris, it's likely, but technically, we could have a pope today. so officially, when does chimney watch begin? >> it begins as soon as the door closes and votes begin. no question about that. there's a very heavy expectation that tonight's vote is more a familiarity. an introduction to it. and it will become much more i

trying to think in some way, any way to rebrand after getting crushed in the election. and now we have their big solution. meet the new ryan budget. it's just like the old one. just worse. more cuts for the poor and the middle class. more v.i.p. treatment for the rich, so much for that big gop change of heart. here's a news flash for congressman ryan. you lost the election. americans rejected your priorities and just to be sure i'm not imagining all of this, we pulled the table of election night. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. his supporters and his campaign also deserve congratulations. >> that's your running mate conceding the election and that's you right there. we put an arrow on the tape so you wouldn't miss yourself. there's you giving a nice big hug to the second place winner on your ticket. see, you knew i wasn't making it up and yet that night must not have sunk in because in his latest budget, wrong ray ryan calls for repealing the president's health care law again. >> are you saying that as part of your budget you would repeal, you

about that. we've had a tough election last november and it's perfectly appropriate to study what happened. there are a lot of lessons to be learned and ideas to look at. but i bet you're like me. i'm a little tired of the hand-wringing. conservatives were never meant to be part of the crybaby caucus. i know folks have a lot of opinions about what happened in november but seriously, how many conferences, and lunch panels do we really need to have about it? i'm starting to wonder if the caterers union is behind it. [laughter] back home in kentucky parents have a way of teaching their kids how to deal with adversity. if you get your tail whipped, you don't whine it. you don't look for somebody to blame. you stand up and punch back. [applause] if you hadn't noticed the folks who won last year's election didn't waste a whole lot of time on a victory lap. they got right back at it. these guys are well-organized, they're well-financed. they're ruthless, and if you don't put this election behind us soon, they're going to eat our lunch again. so let me just add my voice to the post-electi

and his mate mitt romney are about to win the presidential election. >> our businesses have created jobs every month for three years straight. nearly 6.4 million new jobs in all. >> we'd say we'd get rid of obama care and apply the savings to medicare. >> get rid of obama care. get rid of obama care. get rid of obama care. we're going to get rid of this medicare by repealing obama care. stop picking winners and losers. winners and losers. stop picking winners and losers. >> are you saying as part of your budget you would assume the repeal of obama care? >> yes. >> that's not going to happen. >> we need our democrat colleagues to get serious. get serious. get serious. get serious. >> surely you can't be serious. >> yes. our budget does promote repealing obama care. >> surely you can't be serious. >> i want to explore the question as to whether there's the basis for a compromise here. i have to say, i don't hear it so far. >> i am serious. and don't call me shirley. >>> we begin with the battle of the budgets with blueprints in both parties out this week setting tax and spending targets fo

is coming up with some type of autopsy of the last election. >> you've got to do a full autopsy. >> stephen: yes, a full autopsy. which is also the republican alternative to obamacare. [laughter] to plot their path back to power, the gop recently held a three-day conference in williamsburg, virginia, which is the perfect location, because the republican platform also re-enacts the 18th century. [laughter] they say they went there for a little self-reflection exactly what men inspired by ayn rand need-- more time thinking about themselves. [laughter] they also reached out to voters, with a web-survey asking how they can improve their messaging. and a computerized web survey is the perfect way to hear from republicans' core constituency of the extremely old. latch laugh the number one suggestion was, "hello? hello? how does this thing make toast?" [laughter] [cheers and applause] and after that, the gop crunched the numbers and figured out what they need to change about their views toward women, immigration, and tax cuts for the rich. and the answer was-- i have it "nothing." it's a blank she
